I spent three and a half hours at the beauty salon today getting my hair cut and highlighted. I have a lot of difficulty sitting still for more than an hour at a time (or perhaps it’s a slight case of ADD) but thanks to wine and The Rosie Project, I managed to get through the day without losing my sanity and, more importantly, a stylist. Saki has been doing my hair for over a decade and it’s been about a decade since my hair started looking good. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
While I was sitting in the chair, I reflected on my hair styles of years gone by and I thought it might be fun (and a little bit humiliating) to share some of them with you. At the outset, I confess that with a few exceptions, I have not been all that adventurous with my hair. Once I was old enough to demand that my mother stop whispering, “cut it short” in the stylist’s ear without my knowledge, I always kept my hair long. The most common variant was “bangs” or “no bangs.”
Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with me. I think I’m proof that the twenties are not necessarily the best decade – at least in terms of appearance :).
